- This is identical form to a covered tureen marked by Philadelphia retail firm William Joseph Kerr China Hall, 191 Chestnut St. This firm is listed in A McElroy’s 1839 Philadelphia City Directory and continues at that address thru the mid-19th century.
- Joseph Kerr established a china business in Philadelphia, PA in 1826 and continued for about a quarter century which then continued with his three sons. A set of “buff china” was ordered by Mary Lincoln in 1865 from the sons – Joseph and James K Kerr’s China Hall for the White House. The bill of sale at that time shows that the JK Kerr’s China Hall was selling English & French china.
